Yarn as recommended, a variety of colours of Rowan Fine Tweed.
Needles 3.25mm for cuff, 2.5mm for body.
I have modified these to fit my alarmingly small hands - I missed 2 pattern repeats before decreasing, and while my fingers do touch the very end, to have knit an extra repeat would have made them much too big.
The thumb gusset isn't perfect, the floats are pulled a bit tight and as such the thumb is a little tight, but I'll know for sure later today when I finish this mitten!
On my kindle I am still ploughing my way through the Outlander series - I am on book 5, The Fiery Cross, and it still holds my attention and distracts me from everything else. What an amazing book series, and would heartily recommend it to anyone! It still causes me to come out with random Scots words I no longer use, and has also brought some Gaelic back to me (not much though!!!). I cannot wait to see where this series goes.
